This very much seems like the final keyboard that I'll ever need.  I love small things with a lot of bells and whistles. 
Just wanted to make sure, will this be QMK compatible?

Thanks.

How exciting!

Edit: I'd also like to ask if there's a friendly option to ship to the UK.

I would prefer the rotary encoder and LED on the left, so there is more room for the mouse on the right of the keyboard, but I will probably buy it regardless :-)

Great concept.

I mean, it’s already 40% - you’ll have plenty of mouse room regardless, hehe

> most "extra" 40(ish)%

Though I like the knob and OLED, wish it didn't need an elite-C board to work. It expands the port area, and with an alu case, it really doesn't need this.

I can't do 40% layout but the design is great and I really like the OLED and rotary placements on the board. If this ever gets a big brother in the 65-75% range, I'd be in for sure.

Best of luck on this project!

Yeah, this is slick. I'm becoming a sucker for exposed components and want a 40%. Nice work.

Wow, my cutemeter just broke its scale. This is awsome. I problably don't need a 40% but this could really change my needs :-)

Is there any chance to see a 4th color? That pastel light blue used to complement the pink in some renders would fit perfectly on the case itself. (Also something like the 353 C of Superuser would be astonishing and stilll on the pastel theme, but I guess it would be a little too nichey for the whole case)

Thanks man! Means a lot! Can't wait to get Superuser on one of these for real!

I'm working to try and get a custom knob made alongside the board but if that doesn't happen then I'll aim to source some "standard" knobs. I'll update as and when anything changes.

Not yet... it's due to start GB in February once I've finalised a few of the suppliers

Love the changes. I'm pretty sad to see ortho go, but I like the layout you've landed at with the inclusion of the split bars.

Will certainly be joining this when you run it!

A very unusual and fun little board.  Great work on the design.  I am very interested just for the fun of it.
I started typing on a Sinclair ZX Spectrum 'human flesh' keyboard in 1980 and I never stopped.

Rational thoughts: I think I'd struggle with something smaller than 60% and I don't really need another board.
That little voice at the back of my mind: But it has an oled and a rotary encoder!

I know it's boring but I would have liked a version in black. It looks pretty sweet with cyberspace.
